Stan Benz of Benz Farms Boers in Bell Buckle, TN, died Monday November 19, 2001, in Rochester, Indiana, following a heart attack. He was 53 years old.

Memorials in memory of Mr. Benz may be made to The American Heart Association or to The Alzheimer's Association.

Stan was born Stanley R. Benz on May 22, 1948, to Arthur R. Benz of Gibson City, Illinois, and the late Juanita Hutchinson Benz.
Stan was a graduate of Paxton High School in Paxton, IL, and attended the University of Illinois. He was the founder of Glass Unlimited and was co-owner of Barrett Manufacturing Company of Murfreesboro, TN. He was a member of The United Methodist Church.

He is survived by his wife, Dawn Essary Benz, two sons; Robert W. Benz and Bradford K. Benz both of Murfreesboro, TN, two daughters; Mrs. Susan Watson of Murfreesboro, TN, and Holly Heffington of Bell Buckle, TN, his father Arthur R. Benz of Gibson City, IL, brother Steve Benz of Stevens Point, WI, and granddaughter Ashton Elizabeth Watson of Murfreesboro, TN.

Stan has been a leading figure in the Boer goat breeding industry for several years. He and his wife Dawn have provided outstanding seed and replacement stock to many breeders. Many of the Boers purchased at Benz Farms will benefit the industry for years to come.
Benz Farms is also widely known for it's participation in the annual ShowStopper production sale. Stan and Dawn, with partners Ryals Rocking R and E.G.G.S., offered some of the most outstanding animals ever available through production sales.

The show record of the Benz Farms Boer goats is legendary. Hundreds of Grand Championships and almost uncountable 1st place wins attest to the high quality genetics and the outstanding phenotype of their animals.

Stan was considered by many, including myself, to be a trusted friend, a valued client, and an honored business associate.

Benz Farms, nestled in the rolling hills of southern Middle Tennessee, is dedicated to the production of livestock. They maintain over 125 cow/calf pairs and 250 Boer and percentage goats. The farm produces it's own hay harvesting more than 1200 round bales and 1500 square bales each year.
